April 30 - May 3
Under the management and responsibility of the Turkish Armed Forces Foundation, the international defence industry fair IDEF takes place every two years at Tüyap Fair Convention & Congress Center of Istanbul. In the meantime the fair ranks among the fifth largest defence industry exhibitions worldwide. Against presentation of their invitation card, selected visitors can get a general idea of the latest developments in terms of ground, sea and air defence at this important information and communication platform of the industry. The exhibitors present vehicles, military equipment, training and simulation, as well as measures to support transportation and logistics. Especially Turkish military equipment has become increasingly important over the past years. Situated between the two continents, Istanbul is a strategically favourable place for a global event like the IDEF, especially in view of the political situation at the borders of Turkey and the North African coastal regions. The spacious Tuyap fair Convention & Congress Center offers all of the amenities and technical standards of a modern exhibition centre.
